Learning Objectives

By taking this course, you will learn the ins and outs of how insurance companies operate in Minnesota. The course is delivered via self-paced, online modules and an end-of-course exam, as described below.

  • Minnesota Workers' Compensation Insurance System Overview

    This module covers the technical aspects of insurance in Minnesota including how insurance underwriters determine the premium employers pay and what factors drive up the cost of a workers' compensation insurance policy.

  • Introduction &Overview of the Minnesota Workers' Compensation System

    As with any state, Minnesota has its own unique rules and laws to handle workers' compensation claims. This module provides an overview of the workers' compensation system in Minnesota, presents the basic terminology regularly used in workers' compensation cases, and explains "who's who" in a typical claim.

    This module also lays out a very useful timeline, and shows examples of many of the common forms used in managing a workers' compensation claim, including First Report of Injury, Notice of Insurer's Primary Liability Determination, Notice of Intention to Discontinue Benefits, and Notice of Benefit Payment.

  • Admitting or Denying a Claim and Determining Benefits

    This module presents the fundamental issues involved in a Minnesota workers' compensation claim including whether to admit or deny a claim, evaluating the course and scope of employment as related to an employee's injury, and establishing a causal connection. It also explains how to calculate an employee's average weekly wage, in addition to the four types of wage loss benefits: Temporary Total Disability, Temporary Partial Disability, Permanent Total Disability, and Permanent Partial Disability.

  • Medical Issues in a Workers' Compensation Claim

    Bearing in mind that workers' compensation claims involve injured employees, medical issues frequently arise in handling a claim. This module explains reasonable and necessary medical care, treatment parameters, aggravation of a preexisting condition, Independent Medical Evaluations, Health Care Provider Reports and Reports of Work Ability, work restrictions, chiropractic treatment, Maximum Medical Improvement, and Medical Requests.

  • Rehabilitation and Retraining of an Employee in a Workers' Compensation Claim

    Often, the goal for an injured employee is to get back into the work place. For this reason, handling a workers' compensation claim may involve rehabilitation and retraining as part of an employee's plan to return to work. This module seeks to simplify the Rehabilitation Request and other "R-forms," Disability Status Report, Qualified Rehabilitation Consultants, Placement Specialists, Functional Capacity Evaluations, and Independent Vocational Evaluators. It also explains what is involved in performing a diligent job search.
